The proposed ban on flag-burning is a purely symbolic, political act. Even if it did pass, it would likely be tested and struck down in either a liberal or conservative high court.

Gotta run now. I have to burn a Koran in the front yard before heading to work.

I wonder exactly what this would cover. When I was a Boy Scout, we would have special ceremonies when our flag got too old or worn and would burn it then. I thought there were special conditions where burning a flag is appropriate.

I for one am glad that Congress and thereafter state legislatures will be spending their time (and taxpayer money) debating this issue.

I for one believe that outlawing the burning of the American Flag will help defeat terrorism, grow the economy, create jobs and lower crime.

I for one am also very sarcastic.

The unrepentant Court that decided the symbolic act of desecration of our flag was somehow protected speech did so
after a godless Communist led his group of dissseased and mentally challenged sub-humans in the patriotic display
of petty vandalism and theft after their profane language and obscene hand gestures were not getting the attention they desired. A stolen flag was burned as the animals rutted about chanting the Red the Whtie ,the Blue ,we spit on you.And the demigods of the Federal Court decided Texas had no right to enact laws protecting the national flag.
And it is just a symbol of our country. The World Trade Center was just a symbol of our system of commerce. Those who get more exercised over attemt to protect our flag and
restore some measure of what once was.Than they get over the vile act --have No right-indeed their public displays
over the events of 9-11-01 are proven false because --after all it was just a symbolic gesture.If itis ok to desecrate our flag--then it ought be equally acceptable to
burn a cross on someones lawn.
